SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Oracle's (Quote, Chart) future upgrades to its grid software suite are now expected to include better collaboration with XML-based Query data, company execs said Wednesday.

Known as XQuery, the markup language is capable of labeling the information content of several data sources including structured and semi-structured documents, relational databases and object repositories.

The Redwood Shores, Calif.-based company is planning to release its first upgrade to its Oracle 10g Database software this June, but said native support for XQuery is almost a shoe-in for release number two. No release date has been set for the second release.
